Alexandra Vartosu, M.C. (Psych.)

Registered Prov. Psychologist

In T3G 5G8 - Nearby to De Winton.

In today's world, children encounter a great deal of stress, on multiple fronts: academic performance, high achievement standards, heavy scheduling, peer pressure, bombarded by media (TV, Internet, Messaging), as well as family tension. When they don't have adequate solutions to help them cope with their stress, they tend to act out, or give up, or get into unhealthy behaviours. In working with me, I can offer them a non-judgmental sympathetic ear, as well as strategies that can help them make wiser decisions, be aware of their strengths, deal effectively with stress, encourage hope and optimism, develop tangible skills to navigate their world, and take care of their mind and body.

Psychologist / Psychologue

In T2T 2B1 - Nearby to De Winton.

It is not always easy to understand our young children. Through the use of art and play therapy for the child and an interview with parents, I can provide parents of young children with practical ways and ideas to better address a particular issue they are dealing with (e.g., anxiety, defiance, nightmares).

Registered Psychologist

In T3H 4H9 - Nearby to De Winton.

I work with children as young a five years of age and find that it is necessary to have parents' actively participate in therapy with their child. Children typically respond well to therapy when they understand that they are not the problem and they can see that their parents are learning and trying new skills and strategies too. Children are developmentally primed to learn new things with the right skills and strategies they make great progress.

Nurse Specialist, Family Counsellor

In T2T 3S9 - Nearby to De Winton.

Children struggle with a variety of mental health concerns, including externalizing behaviours (tantrums, angry outbursts, aggression), anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and ADHD. Utilizing narrative, CBT and play therapy techniques, your children will gain insight into their own reactions and behaviours, and ways of communicating distress to caregivers. A significant parent and family therapy component empowers caregivers and families to help children live their best lives.

In T2T 0A3 - Nearby to De Winton.

As children we acquire non-nurturing elements in our formative years we can either be raised in nurturing environments or non-nurturing environments. Regardless of which environment we were raised in there are always flaws that get in the way of us being adaptive or feeling like we’re unconditionally supported and loved. There can be themes such as a caregiver being critical or controlling, never being home, or having addictions.

Jeannine Crofton, M. A. Counselling Psychology.

Registered Psychologist

In T2P 0B3 - Nearby to De Winton.

I can help your child with their transition to separation and divorce. I have worked with children as young as seven years old and with adult children who continue to struggle to make sense of the transitions in their families. Children at times become fearful and anxious as a result of school issues, family transitions or grief and loss. I understand developmental stages and how that capacity grows as they age.

Clinical Social Worker

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to De Winton.

Children receiving therapy with Lurline will benefit from advanced training in a number of play and creative arts strategies, as well as parent-child attachment. Play methods are more naturally designed to assist children with processing their emotional difficulties. Children feel more comfortable dealing with their strong emotions using play and art. The expectation of working through difficult themes using traditional talk therapies that were never designed with children in mind is rarely successful. Parents who bring their children in are kept informed, given suggestions for how best to support their child, and often may be asked to become involved in therapy sessions to improve success.

Registered Psychologist: Counselling Services of Calgary

In T2E 6P6 - Nearby to De Winton.

Usually children are seen in the context of being seen with their main caregivers (usually parents). Helping the caregivers to be able to overcome areas they struggle with as a part of helping their children can be the most effective help for the children. As the caregivers overcome their struggles they can be in a better space to help their children. However, sometimes the help for the children needs to be provided at the same time as help is being given for the caregivers. Help for the children is then provided and the caregivers may observe how the help is given to be able to implement some of the techniques themselves.

In T2W 2V5 - Nearby to De Winton.

Children are just little people. They hear what you hear, they see what you see and, though differently, they understand and their little hearts get broken too. When little hearts get broken they need a safe place where they can come and, right along side of mom, learn what it means for both of you to care for their heart. Come, and learn how our Christian counselling and play therapy can both heal your child's heart and empower you to continue that healing.

Child Therapist

Bernadene Weskin, MSc

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 0L7 - Nearby to De Winton.

Young children often have difficulty expressing their thoughts and feelings using language, especially if they have experienced trauma. Difficulties can result in disruptive behaviors. In my custom built play therapy rooms, children are able to explore the underlying issues that have resulted in these behaviors and together we can develop their skills to express themselves in more acceptable ways. Parenting young children can stressful. You may find yourself feeling guilty about yelling at your child and wondering what are the long-term impacts? I can guide you in understanding your child's behavior, build a stronger relationship, and to raise happy, successful children.
